Aloha! Gabrielle here to take another look at design and how it works with bar and restaurants specifically! This month’s focus is a project near and dear to my heart as I got to be a part of the design team. The challenge was to to take a pre-existing co-work space and make it in to a premier craft cocktail bar.
What makes for a well designed bar? Pretty? Sure. Maximizes seating while keeping the guest comfortable? Great. Designed to give the user a great experience? Yes. But who is the user of a bar?
Problematically, most bars are designed with the user of the bar being the guest.
